BOWIE 1965! ★ David Bowie

BOWIE 1965! ★
Released for Record Store Day 20 Apr 2013.  Reissue of  a 4-track limited 7” which collects together both of the singles Bowie released in 1965, with The Manish Boys and The Lower Third.  Not released in the US or Canada, EU release exclusively.  Sent to me my a mysterious friend and lets thank that person who did those great hd cover scans.

A1 Pity The Fool [The Manish Boys]
A2 Take My Tip [The Manish Boys]
B1 You've Got A Habit Of Leaving [Davy Jones (& The Lower Third)]
B2 Baby Loves That Way [Davy Jones (& The Lower Third)]

Side One gives you the single released by Bowie's group of the time The Manish Boys - first up a version of Bobby Bland's "I Pity The Fool" which features a blistering guitar solo from Jimmy Page. Next up is the first Bowie song to make it onto vinyl - the distinctly Mod-flavoured "Take My Tip". Side Two has our man billed as Davy Jones & The Lower Third - and the tracks on offer here are firstly "You've Got A Habit Of Leaving" - which if it sounds slightly Who-ish should be too surprising as it's produced by Shel Talmy who was producing both bands at the time - and again featuring a Jimmy Page solo. The proceeding are rounded off with "Baby Loves That Way" another Bowie original and somewhat typical of the period.
